Mixes high school romance and ho-hum heroics for a movie that’s still fun but leaves you wanting something better.
Author Russ Ceccola
I have had a strong love for entertainment since I was old enough to play pinball machines and go to the movies. I have been writing professionally since 1986 when I branched out from my position as Entertainment Editor of The Villanovan to write about computer games and video games for lots of different magazines like Commodore Magazine, GAMES and Electronic Games. Rich and I started an online magazine about games called Escapade in 1998, so it's only fitting that we join up once again to write about our other love - movies - as well as games, politics, music, theater and anything else that moves us. Heck, it feels like I'm back to being an Entertainment Editor again.
A summer feel-good romantic comedy that reminds you that love and music are essential to life every day.
Takes a stab at rebooting the horror franchise, but it misses the mark and only leaves flesh wounds in its feeble attempt.
Comes off as lifeless and perfunctory despite two strong casting choices and a taste of the franchise’s comedy.
Feels like a stand-alone story with little connection to the franchise other than some of the actors/characters and a country that still doesn’t trust mutants.
Not only the satisfying conclusion to a two-movie story but also the perfect payoff to that 10-year journey on which moviegoers embarked.
Another horror flick that makes you think as well as squirm in your seat.
Captain Marvel doesn’t feel cohesive and at times bored me with its awful pacing and storytelling.
Contains all of the elements for a wonderful sequel yet wrecks them with some questionable decisions and a silly finale.
Contains too many dead spots and occasionally wanders off course like a faulty broom on magical autopilot.
This unusual fantasy mixture of influences and visuals doesn’t lose your focus or interest.
